Lebanon Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Any bicyclist knows that Oregonia trails – and Lebanon, in general – aren’t “bike friendly.” There are inattentive drivers, busy intersections and a host of hazards that can cause you a lot of stress. Bike accidents across the region are frequent and very painful for victims.
At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, our attorneys fight for bike and pedestrian accident victims in Lebanon and Warren County who need help to get what they need. Often, insurers and other drivers push to ignore and minimize injuries to cyclists. This can be frustrating, but when you turn to one of our lawyers, they will confront this head-on for you.
Unique Risks To Bicyclists
While risks for bicyclists are similar to those for motorcycle riders, bikes are at a serious disadvantage in some ways. After all, a motorcycle can get up to much higher speeds, which can help them move with the flow of traffic more easily. Additionally, most motorcycles are intentionally loud, making other drivers much more aware of them than bicycles.
Even when traffic is at lower speeds, that does not make it less likely that bicyclists will suffer catastrophic injuries in accidents. You’re still vulnerable in a crash with a car simply due to the physics of it. You may receive injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe abrasions and avulsions
When you or someone you love has severe injuries from a bicycle accident, the insurance company will work hard to avoid compensation, as it’s in their best interests to avoid paying it.
